Make it a Happy Hanukkah with Joyful Wishes from American Greetings

Cleveland (November 27, 2017) – Hanukkah is rooted in tradition far beyond dreidel games, delicious latkes and gold gelt. The Hanukkah story is one of faith and freedom that shines light on the true meaning of the Maccabees triumph over their oppressors, the rededication of Jerusalem’s Temple, and the miracle of one day’s worth of oil burning for eight. Also known as the Feast of Dedication, the 2017 holiday begins the evening of Tuesday, December 12 and ends the evening of Wednesday, December 20. Share the joys and blessings of this holy season with bright and beautiful Hanukkah cards and gift wrap from American Greetings.

This year’s card collection for the Festival of Lights appeals to consumers across generations and sending situations with real-life language for more authentic connections. Iconic subject matter that clearly conveys the cultural and religious importance of the holiday is complemented by new and updated designs. Bright colors, contemporary illustrations and fresh fonts add excitement to the occasion, and there are even cards combining Hanukkah and Christmas themes for those who celebrate both!

Hanukkah is a time to remember and rejoice in shared customs and beliefs – and one of the favorite customs is gift-giving. With designs rich in traditional symbolism and colors and lettering in festive, sophisticated looks, American Greetings gift packaging assortment offers the perfect solutions for presenting gifts throughout the eight days.

Consumers can find these Hanukkah products, in addition to a great selection of inspiring cards from American Greetings, at participating drug chains, grocery stores and mass retailers nationwide, as well as in American Greetings and Carlton Cards retail stores.
